In 1946-1947 a group of senior Yolngu leaders and bark painters in Yirrkala in Australia’s north-east Arnhem Land collaborated with anthropologists Ronald and Catherine Berndt to document the intricacies of their culture, lands and history. The result was Yirrkala Drawings, a collection of over 360 crayon drawings on brown paper.
Dynamic, vivid and unlike any other Indigenous Australian art at that time, this is the first comprehensive publication of these magnificent drawings. Accompanied by insightful essays and interviews with the artists’ descendants, this book reveals the enduring power of this landscape and its people.

Six Seasons of Noongar life — a beautiful story of the Noongar Six Seasons depicted through vibrant textiles works.

In doing so the Wagga Noongar Six Seasons booklet has emerged as a narrative of shared experiences, reinvigorated cultural connections and renewed a sense of identity.
Written by Barbara Bynder and the Kookaburra Club.

The technique of Japanese woodblock printing, 木版画, moku hanga, is identified most closely with the genre of art Ukiyo-e, 浮世絵, commonly translated as ‘pictures of the floating world’.
Ronald and Catherine Berndt collected many Ukiyo-e together, starting when Ronald was still at school. They had a life-long fascination with these technically accomplished works, visually stunning in their colours and transparency, and equally dramatic in their subject matter.
Drawn not only from the classical sagas of Japan, the Ukiyo-e depicted a contemporary world of people in their landscape —and their society.
